Kirshner Scholars

Each year, PFF awards up to three $5,000 scholarship awards to those graduating seniors who best exemplify the ideals of PFF and Alan Kirshner’s commitment to excellence. Students are selected based on their commitment to the PFF program, work ethic, academic performance, leadership in the program and community, and excellent communication skills.

Solutions Messages

Solutions messages are recorded by students just like you. They give you specific suggestions about situations you encounter every day; they give you constructive ways to use your time, talents and energy, and talk about ways to avoid violent behavior. If you have a story you’d like to share, let us know — you could be featured on our site!

To listen, you need Windows Media Player.
